The Beatles had three lives in 10 years. In 1960-1962, they feature a stage band delivering traditional R&B and rock’n roll, appearing nearly 500 times on stage mostly in Hamburg and Liverpool Clubs. From 1963 to 1966, they convert into the world’s #1 pop-hits delivering machine, impersonating the British ‘beat-pop’ wave with 7 studio albums, 13 singles and buoyant international tours. In 1967-1969, the band stops touring but successfully publishes another 6 LPs and 7 singles while shifting to a popular style of  moderate progressive rock, starting with its 1966 tracks ‘Rain‘ and ‘Tomorrow never knows‘. In just over 200 songs, the Beatles claim sales topping 500 million units and are the world’s best-selling musical act ever, together with Elvis Presley. From Uruguay to Russia, everyone loves the Beatles.
